Orioles-Rays Feature Historic All-Women Broadcast 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jul 21, 2021 12:40 pm

Major League history was made on Tuesday when an all-women broadcast crew was used for YouTube\'s Game of the Week between the Baltimore Orioles and Tampa Bay Rays.

Melanie Newman, the Orioles\' radio play-by-play announcer since last year, called the action while analyst and MLB.com writer Sarah Langs, who formerly worked in ESPN\'s Stats & Information group, was assigned as the in-booth analyst.

Alanna Rizzo was the on-field reporter, while Heidi Watney and Lauren Gardner anchored the pregame and postgame shows.
